Is going to hurt us in South Korea. You think the Arabs are the only ones who give a shit about the strong horse vs. the weak horse? No. The Korean culture is very huge on respect and saving face, and being forced to do nothing even though they have solid proof that the Norks sank their ship is going to eat them alive from the inside out. But the Obama administration, once again, is protecting a communist dictator at the expense of our allies.
And it's going to hurt us. You think some of those South Korean rioters who want the US out are going to like us more now? Hell no. And many of the Koreans who regard the USA with something akin to friendship are going to be re-evaluating their assessment of America when America is preventing them from responding to a deliberate act of war by the Norks.
I don't know if I've said this before, but it needs to be said now - I don't know if we will be able to recover from the diplomatic damage that Obama is doing. This is just another example of that damage.
